I was recently using Yavdr with no real problems, but now I decided to
build my own VDR system on top of Linux Mint. Main reason was that
Yavdr stable still doesn't have vdr 2.2.0..
I've got everything working nicely, but I have weird "duped frames"
problem with softhhddevice. Video and audio are fine and nicely in
sync, and usually you can't see anything wrong. But fast moving
objects sometimes have "tearing" and jerky movement.
Also if I open Softhddevice stats from the VDR main menu, I see that
"duped" field increases steadily maybe 9-10 per second! "dropped" and
"missed" stays at zero usually.
There is nothing special on the log. Sometimes I get logs like this:
Oct 26 01:09:42 puucee vdr: video: slow down video, duping frame
Oct 26 01:09:42 puucee vdr: video: 22:17:22.060 +55 311 0/\ms 23+7 v-buf
Oct 26 01:10:29 puucee vdr: video: slow down video, duping frame
Oct 26 01:10:29 puucee vdr: video: 22:18:09.380 +53 285 0/\ms 26+7 v-buf
But as you can see, these are almost a minute apart, and the actual
"duped" count increased by several hundreds already during that time.
So this logged "duping" is normal a/v sync, what I see is something
This is VDR 2.2.0, and quite recent softhddevice from yavdr ppa:
And the very same hardware worked just nicely with full yavdr install,
with vdr 2.0.x and some old version of softhddevice. Oh, and I have
